Directions to the Old Quay House Hotel in Fowey

If you're travelling from Plymouth via the Tamar Bridge, follow the A38. You'll pass Liskeard and Dobwalls. At the roundabout, take the second exit onto the A390, which leads to St Austell. Drive through Lostwithiel, and after about a mile, make a left onto the B3269, which will take you to Fowey.

For those travelling from Exeter on the M5, exit at junction 31 and get onto the A30 towards Bodmin. When you reach Bodmin, take the A389 through the town and then switch to the B3269 to reach Fowey.

If you're using a Satellite Navigation system, make sure to set it to 'Avoid ferries' to prevent being directed over the Bodinnick Ferry and smaller B roads. Additionally, be cautious as some Sat Navs might lead you to Polruan, a small town across the river. Ensure that you input "Fowey" and the hotel's name for accurate directions. The hotel is categorized under 'Places of Interest' (POI) within the hotels section.

Starting from the mini roundabout at the town's outskirts, follow the A3082 road with signs pointing towards Fowey. At the second mini-roundabout, take the initial exit, and then do the same at the third mini-roundabout. Continue along the road as it descends until you encounter a right-hand bend indicating Fowey and the Main Car Park. Take a left turn at this bend, leading you onto Lostwithiel Street. Follow this route through town, passing the church and continuing along Fore Street. The Old Quay House will be situated on your right side.

Please note that this hotel doesn't have its own parking area. However, there are multiple car parks available throughout Fowey. One option is the Old Station Yard Car Park, which is located approximately 800 yards beyond the hotel. Guests have the choice to make payments either at the meter or through the 'Just Park' app. Other parking alternatives are also accessible. It's important to acknowledge that we are unable to guarantee parking spaces, as these lots are managed by an external company and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

To streamline your arrival, we suggest driving into the town centre and briefly halting outside the hotel to unload your luggage. You're permitted to stop outside the hotel for a maximum of 5 minutes, temporarily holding traffic. Afterwards, you can proceed to your preferred parking area.
